of people that are far advanced when it comes to science and technology, and even the ability to socialize with each other- we are more socially mature than most people that i meet outside of america. but i think we are far behind our advancement in technoscience and technology when it comes to social maturity- perceiving what society should be, what a human being is. i think we have exaggerations, some of us, of what a human being is and what we should expect of a human being- exaggerations- and some of us poorly estimate the value of human beings. so we are not- to me, we are not the greatest society when it comes to social maturity. >> you know, that's one of the problems we've wrestled with in this class over and over again, because we hear such beautiful statements of love and caring and equality and justice coming from deeply religious people, and it's like you say, you know, somehow we haven't matured to a level that even respects the religions we profess. i'm just curious, in terms of your understanding of islam, how does that, in your own life, lend itself to making us better- bet

nothing. and as the technology changes, it's going to be easier and easier to make these very cheap films for someone like gregg who's got that much talent. if you're determined to make a film now, i am convinced that you can find a way to make it. whether you shoot it on video and get it transferred, or you get everyone and all the equipment for free, or you save up for two or three years, all those ways now are possible. whereas before, it was completely out of the question. i think i'll always be a guerilla filmmaker. at one point, one critic called us outlaws and so, yes, i am a film outlaw and i think that's a good thing to be. h e annenberg media ♪ and: with additional funding from these foundations and individuals: and by: and the annual financial support of: for information about this and other annenberg media programs call 1-800-learner and visit us at www.learner.org.
